    Default anyone heard of a TPR-16 jet

    Saw one today for sale and it looks like a smaller version of the tpr edge stealth.

    Anyone know anything about these boats??? Looks kind of like a texas tunnel but front end looks like an edge stealth.

    Guy said it ran 118 in 1000 ft with 468 blown alky engine, which he said was only around 1000 hp.

    said it was full carbon fiber and bare weight was 325. What do you think about this for a 1/8 th mile boat?

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Actually the hull that is being talked about is Scottys boat that used to have a injected BBC on alky and used it down in Blythe at 6th st. his hull looked different to the one pictured above here, his deck almost resembles a Cheyanne and the beak was more thinner and has just a little more style that the one above as well IMO. Both cool boats though!
